  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 4 teaspoons soy sauce, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 25 eaches sugar snap peas, chopped
  • 10 small spears fresh asparagus, trimmed and cut into bite-size pieces

  1. Sprinkle chicken pieces with Cajun seasoning.
  2. Whisk chicken broth, cornstarch, and 3 teaspoons soy sauce together in a bowl until completely blended.
